This essay focuses on the use of chess as an allegory for religious, political and social power structures in Catholic Medieval Europe. It would be interesting to do an experiment with contemporary video games to explore how the core mechanic an be used as a cultural allegory.

I like the focus here on using chess as an allegory to support religious and social power systems. It would be interesting to try and experiment by trying to find a computer game whose mechanic could be used in the same way.
